Yanchep is an outer coastal suburb of Perth, Western Australia, north of Perth's central business district. It is part of the City of Wanneroo local government area. Originally a small crayfishing settlement, it was developed by entrepreneur Alan Bond in the 1970s for the 1977 America's Cup. The area covers the urban centre of Yanchep as well as Yanchep National Park in its entirety.GeographyYanchep is bounded to the north-west by Two Rocks and to the south by the rural localities of Eglinton, Carabooda and Pinjar. The non-metropolitan Shires of Gingin and Chittering surround Yanchep's northern and eastern boundaries. West of Yanchep is the Indian Ocean.Its boundaries as a suburb are extremely large, covering over and taking up almost the entire northern and north-eastern portion of the City of Wanneroo. Despite this, Yanchep's urban concentration is almost entirely located in a small enclave around Yanchep Beach Road, near the coast.HistoryThe lands comprising Yanchep were initially used as a sheep station, up until 1970 when Alan Bond bought approximately of land in the area. Bond Corporation presented designs for "Yanchep Sun City" - a future satellite city of over 200,000 residents. The area's first houses were built in 1972, and the marina at nearby Two Rocks was built as part of the same project two years later. However, sales of homes in the area had already slowed down by 1974. In 1977, the project was bought out by Tokyu Corporation after Bond Corporation began experiencing financial difficulties.Use our Australia vacation route planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Yanchep.
